About us

Amrita Devi Foundation is a registered trust under the Indian Trust Act 1882, established in 2019 with the primary objective of supporting Skill Development and Generating Employment Opportunities for girls and women of Uttarakhand, India. The foundation aims to address the issue of migration from the hills of Uttarakhand by providing better skill development opportunities to women, enabling them to find employment within the state instead of moving to cities for a better quality of life.

The Foundation has been actively working towards the employment and livelihood of the people of Uttarakhand, with a particular focus on women from remote areas. Through the Amrita Devi Women's Skill Development Institute, the foundation has set up four institutes in rural areas of District Almora. These institutes offer employment-oriented courses such as Computer Operator, Digital Marketing, and Tailoring, empowering women to become self-reliant. By acquiring these skills, the women can not only support themselves but also contribute to their family's financial needs, enabling them to remain in their villages.

In 2022, the Foundation established a new wing named as Amrita Devi Earth Care with a focus on Environmental Initiatives. The goal of this wing is to create a Sustainable Future for Uttarakhand by Nurturing the Environment, Providing Employment Opportunities to local communities, and promoting the Health and Wellbeing of villagers. Two significant initiatives under this wing are the "Smokeless Chulha" and "Afforestation" programs.


In the "Smokeless Chulha" Initiative, the Foundation Provides Chulhas (stoves) to Villagers in need, Promoting Clean and Efficient cooking practices. This not only helps in reducing indoor air pollution but also enhances the overall wellbeing of the villagers.

The "Afforestation" Initiative Involves Planting around 600 Sandalwood Trees in the Villages. This not only contributes to the conservation of the Environment but also provides Economic Benefits to the Villages.

As the trees grow, the villagers can benefit from the sale of sandalwood, empowering them economically.

Overall, Amrita Devi Foundation's efforts are geared towards empowering women through Skill Development, Promoting Sustainable Practices, and Creating Employment Opportunities in Uttarakhand. By working on these fronts, the Foundation aims to reverse the trend of migration from the hills and revitalize the rural areas, ensuring a better future for the people of Uttarakhand.

We believe all women can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.
